I have a very hard time believing - especially since his son is now taking more of a role - that Reinsdorf would hand the keys of the franchise over to John McDonough.
Do you think William Wirtz would have hired McDonough - I think not.
Same with Jerry Reinsdorf.
I agree with you it would almost be impossible to see McDonough knowingly accepting a job in order to simply provide cover - but that's not what I meant. McDonough could very well accept a job with the White Sox with everybody intending on him running the show, only to have side show idiots continue with their cloak and dagger routines to the point of paralysis within the organization.
